Member of National Assembly Shafiq Arain was the first person to cast the vote. The contest between Yousaf Raza Gillani and Hafeez Shaikh is said to be the most high profile contest as they both aim for the general seat from Islamabad. Controversies stirred after the leaked video of Ali Haider Gillani where he has been seen instructing how to nullify votes.
